“Germany is more than beer and BMW's, and Porter House is much more than 'Oktoberfest' and nice rooms. The German section provides for house members a place where they can find out more about contemporary life in the German-speaking countries and hone their language skills outside the classroom in an informal setting.”
—S. Schütz. Senior Lecturer of German, Emerita
The German House, located in the Porter residence hall, provides its residents with an environment that encourages and facilitates the speaking of German and the exploration of the culture of German speaking countries.
German House residents also automatically become members of the German Club, a campus-wide SFC-sponsored organization.
Students interested in learning more about the German House are encouraged to attend our annual Open House and Kaffeeklatsch, every December in the Porter Common Room.
